    To be clear, what I have is really more like the remains of a Dream Machine. I'm working on rebuilding it the best I can, a lot of the original parts are gone. In a few weeks, I should have everything here to put it together, and I'll post a thread with details and pics. The vintage ones are really amazing, I wish I'd known what it was that I had...

    Yeah, seems like here and there you will find a Kiesel customer with that exact situation. Sucks, because the two I have are phenomenal.

    EVO gold lasts 3 or 4 times as long, stainless is forever from what I've heard. I spend way too much time reading forums and I've never heard of anyone needing a level and crown job on stainless, let alone a refret.
